Eight Big Ten Volleyball Teams Selected to NCAA Tournament

Coastal Carolina Volleyball to Face #9 Creighton in First Round of NCAA Tournament

"I am so thrilled four our team, especially the seniors".

The Lexington selection follows placements last year in Stanford, Calif., and the year before in Provo, Utah. "Winning the ACC was awesome, so that was a huge hurdle", said Dani Busboom Kelly, UofL first year head coach.

VCU (30-2) owns the nation's longest winning streak of 27 matches in a row. WKU is 2-10 all-time in NCAA play. Coach Chris Lamb's 18 seasons of building, knocking over barrier and barrier, has reached a point where NCAA Tournament opponents are coming to Koch Arena for the first time.

The Lady Toppers were sent to Champaign, Ill., in 2008, '10, '11 and '14. I know this team is having a blast and we don't want the season to end. "It made a lot of sense with the way things laid out". Tech has competed in eight NCAA Tournaments since becoming an NCAA sponsored volleyball program in 1982. Martin is a former Paul Laurence Dunbar High School star, while the freshmen Music and Shelton were standouts together at Henry Clay High School.




KU's goal is to finish the NCAA tournament even closer to home than it's starting it. "I'm going to try to emphasize with the players and with my staff enjoy every second of it, because if or when it ever happens again it's never as special as the first time". "Everyone will be together". It also marks the second-straight year Minnesota is facing North Dakota in the First Round, as the Gophers defeated the Fighting Hawks in 2016 and won, 3-0.

The NCAA Division I Women's Volleyball committee announced the 64-team field that will compete with thirty-two conferences being awarded an automatic qualification, while the remaining 32 positions were filled with at-large selections to complete the bracket.

In fact, UCLA has hosted area-rivals Lipscomb and Murray State in the previous two season's NCAA Tournament opening-round matches. The victor of each match will square off Saturday night at 6:00 p.m. "There is nothing easy about earning a spot in the tournament".

After Saturday's four set loss to Texas, redshirt senior Katie Staiger, who has 1,698 career kills said she, as well as the other seniors, were hoping they'd get another shot to play in front of a home crowd.
